I run a config similar to yours.  I need to authenticate users for
multiple domains which have legacy customers who only specify the
localpart of their e-mail address as their username.  So, I need
the PTR to realm mapping which "virtdomains: on" provides.

I made sure localhost did not resolve to defaultdomain (or any of
the other virtdomains), and could use the cyrus user (and cyradm)
on localhost.

I then wanted to be able to run cyradm from other hosts on the same
LAN so I added another IP address to the LAN interface which did
not have a PTR to defaultdomain (or any of the other virtdomains)
and that works.  I used a address because I did not need
or want it accessible from outside my network.
